Giving Thanks & some kid literary masterpieces

apples, baby kisses, cars to get us where we are going, dance lessons for dear big daughters, eggplant dip from the old country, friendly faces, God's love, happy smiles in the morning, ice cubes ready in the freezer, Jesus' sacrifice, kin that have to love each other, loving hugs, mom and the rest of my extended family, nutella, ocean breezes, people who pray, quiet time, really good books, Saint Philip's fast (Advent), tea, undying mercy of God, violin music by Mozart especially, water, x-cellent kids, you who are reading and commenting, and zoos for fun- Those are a few things I am thankful for this day! and now...a poem....written by a big girl

Time to thank, time to love
Happy are we to have people to think of
All our family has come to the feast
No one can be left out of the feast
Kindness is shown to everyone here
Find no one out there
Underneath the table lie
Little children sneaking pie

another version....written by another big girl....

Time to be cheerful, time to get spry
Happy aromas fill the air
All in the kitchen bake pie
Next, bring out the turkey!
Kin and friends are all here
Find your knives, find your forks
Under the cabinets lie
Lingering mice waiting for evening's pie (seems like somebody's hungry)


  1. That's such a good idea! I like the part about little children sneaking pie... although I am an adult and do it, too! Whoops! :-)

  2. This is wonderful. I'm so behind on the computer. The poems are wonderful as is the alphabet of thanks. I am happy for a Roman advent starting today. I read up on St. Philip's fast as the start of your advent. Our saint is Andrew. I'm thankful for you.
